At Folkeuniversitetet, we use the "communicative approach", which is a learner focused teaching method. This means that we place strong emphasis on communication, interaction and language use in everyday situations. 

The exercises utilize authentic, relevant topics and texts and a variety of communicative tasks such as problem solving, explaining, pair and group work, and role playing. This knowledge can be transferred to real situations you typically come across when you are travelling abroad or using the target language in other context.


All teachers are tertiary level (university level) qualified in languages and/or education and are experienced in the field of education. All teachers have either English as their native language or an equivalent proficiency level. In addition to conveying information, our teachers also foster friendly learning environments and work actively to motivate students.


All participants who attend 75% or more of class time, receive a course certificate. After completing English Pre-intermediate (A2), you are qualified to take the TELC exam, an internationally recognized language proficiency test.

Where to now?

After English Pre-intermediate (A2), we recommend that you take English Intermediate level (B1) so that you can attain the B1 level.
